Get Koch Money Out of Politics: Support S.J. Res. 19

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

The Koch brothers and other billionaires are spending huge sums of money to buy elections, and make the rich even richer. Please join me and MoveOn.org to defend American democracy by supporting S.J. Res. 19, a constitutional amendment to overturn the Supreme Court rulings of Citizens United and McCutcheon.
There are currently 184,700 signatures. NEW goal - We need 200,000 signatures!

Petition Background

The agenda of the Koch brothers is to repeal every major piece of legislation that has been signed into law over the past 80 years that has protected the middle class, the elderly, the children, the sick, and the most vulnerable in this country. Our great nation can no longer be hijacked by right-wing billionaires like the Koch brothers. For the sake of our children and our grandchildren, for the sake of our economy, we have got to let democracy prevail.

Make no mistake, the Citizens United ruling has radically changed the nature of our democracy, further tilting the balance of power toward the rich and the powerful at a time when already the wealthiest people in this country have never had it so good. With the Citizens United decision, the Supreme Court is telling billionaires to go ahead and buy the U.S. government. We must not allow that to happen.
